We just returned from five wonderful days staying in the tent cabins at Big Basin SP. While we have camped most every summer in Big Basin camping sites, this is the second time we have chosen to stay in the tent cabins. For this trip, it was mostly the weather that helped make this choice. Being a little cold, the tent cabin and the wood stove provided a little extra warmth. What a treat to heat the cabin before crawling into bed! The first time we chose the tent cabins it was to help save the amount of gear that we needed to bring with us. Both times in the Big Basin tent cabins were EXCELLENT experiences. The layout of the loop is lovely and most every site has some advantage - sunny, shade, privacy. The bathrooms are clean and the showers feel wonderful at the end of the day. Bring your quarters! There is nothing like being among the redwoods. Life slows and peace settles. It is truly a perfect get-away. I would love to give a little shout-out to the camp hosts. When we arrived on Thursday, the Big Basin store was closed for being off-season. We were able to purchase firewood from Jody when we arrived and she even went up to the store to get ice and bring it to us. It was such a nice gesture and talking with her was a pleasure. Thank you for helping us get set up and starting our five days on such a great note. Cannot wait to return!

We recently went to Big Basin for 2 nights- my friend and her two boys and myself with my son. The scenery, setting and redwoods are awesome and special. The tent cabins make it easier to camp, without forgoing some of the amenities, like blankets, stove and pots and pans, lantern, etc...Unfortunately, we did have a mix-up the first night where someone else was in the cabin we were supposed to have. We were left with an incomplete package even though we had booked months in advance and checked in with the campground numerous times. To her credit, Mary Rajotte (the camp host) worked tirelessly to bring us firewood, towels, bug spray and anything else we lacked up until 10:00 at night! She did her best to rectify the situation and we ended up getting refunded for that night. After we were settled the next day in the correct cabin- which now felt heavenly!- our stay was calm and relaxed without a hitch. Thank you for our stay! We will come back for longer next time!

The park is absolutely beautiful. The tent cabin facilities were good and the bathrooms were clean. I am giving the place a negative review because of an upsetting experience. During very early morning, a person walked up to our tent cabin and lifted the outside shade and stared into our tent cabin. I was awake since I found the mattress uncomfortable. They were only scared off by my screaming and other surrounding campsites stirring. The tent cabins do not have interior curtains, just exterior shades that can easily be lifted by anyone outside.

Thank you for your sharing your feedback. The safety and security of our guests is our top priority and we are so sorry that you encountered such a scary situation during your visit to the tent cabins. Please know we immediately informed our security team and the State Park rangers to make sure they were aware and they have been patrolling the tent cabins after hours in the evening. We hope this is an isolated incident however if you (or any of our guests) ever feel unsafe or see anything that looks suspicious, please don't hesitate to call 911. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

This place is perfect for resetting and getting back in touch with nature. One of our favorite places to get away for a couple of days. We've been here a total of 3 times now, and we will be back. Beautiful!

Will and team (Bruce, Rachel, Crystal, and Melanie) are absolutely amazing! So incredibly accommodating, and our event went off without a hitch thanks to their professionalism and execution. Our company planned a day in the redwoods for 250 people at Big Basin State Park complete with trail activities (hosted by Adventure Associates, also awesome!) and a team lunch at the Gazos picnic area. We ordered over 250 sandwiches and salads from the General Store that were prepped and delivered on time, without error, by Will and team; immensely important when working with such a large group of people. We also rented coolers and trash cans from them, which they helped to load the drinks and ice, and delivered them down to our picnic area. I cannot say enough about Will, Bruce, and Rachel holding down the meal portion of our event (Rachel even drew out a menu for us, and Will and Bruce ran down some chips there were specifically requested by one of our employees), and when I saw Melanie and Crystal pull up to help me break down the event, I was elated. Thank you to the Big Basin Tent Cabins team for going above and beyond to deliver the superb customer service that sometimes goes by the wayside these days. I can't wait for our next event at Big Basin.
